This paper acts as an introduction to carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Chemical vapour deposition (CVD) is detailed together with a summary of their applications in electronics. Among the most promising applications is in field emission. The morphology can be controlled to produce high-brightness field emission sources for SEMs, microwave amplifiers and X-ray sources.
